  • Just perfect place for any water activity! Beautiful views and great hiking infrastructure.
  • I went to the island, which has an old growth forest. To get there you will need to take a boat ride from a nearby town called Oravi, which was 19 the round trip per person. There are also other activities offered in that town, as kayaking and some fishing tours. I recommend it, but bring mosquito protection in summer, I hadn't seen such a mosquito concentration since I went to the Everglades!!
  • Great Park - we went there off-season which gets a little bit expensive since you need a boat to get there. The place itself is really nice and even reveals a bit of the history. You should bring protection against nature's typical insects depending on the season you are there.
  • Very beautiful place
  • Nice place, beautiful scenery and wonderful nature. It's worth a visit and stay for a longer stay 😄
